Traditional Watercolor - D. Knight

          Traditional Watercolor

     Gain confidence in your artwork. Gain insight into getting the most from the watercolor medium.  This is a watercolor course that explores the classical watercolor techniques in a simple systematic way.  Each process is explained and demonstrated and practiced before being used in a more complicated artwork.

     We will be working on one large painting throughout the course.  Each week will introduce, explain, demonstrate and offer in class exercises to a specific traditional watercolor technique.  After practicing the technique the student will add to their larger painting.

5 Week class starts April 4 - May 2

Tuesday 10 a.m. - 12 noon

Fee: $120
Class size limited to 15
